11:10 am
term let's find out a little bit more about the why and let's cross over to our financial market correspondent daniel corp who is keeping an eye for us on the frankfurt stock exchange hi danielle so tell us what do you think is driving the euro right now. well i think there are two i'm a infectious behind of all of this and i can tell you also from the investor's perspective this very strong euro also came as a little surprise for investors here after we really saw a rally here happening at the stock market at the beginning of this year well we are having a very strong european economy at the moment but the main reason behind this is speculation and rumors coming from the european central bank just a few blocks away from where i am that we might be seeing already if this year and change of the monetary policy of the e.c.b. right now we still have zero per cent interest rates here in the euro zone this is
11:11 am
most likely not going to change at least until two thousand and nineteen but many investors are thinking that we could see a complete stop of the bond purchasing program that was already. down now from january to is from sixty billion euros a month to just thirty billion euros a month this has really been giving the euro quite a boost here at the stock market warning now a strong currency a solid currency represents as you mentioned also a solid economy but i know that there's always two sides to every coin what's the downside of a strong euro well even though investors have been asking for a long time that is monetary policy of the e.c.b. is changing they are not really happy with the immediate effects because whatever we have a very strong euro we usually see also shares here at the blue chip index stocks falling because many companies here do a lot of their money with export and with a strong euro those products on the other side of the world for example in the

united states get more expensive and then not anymore that attractive so that's why investors are actually for the moment not so happy with this quote in frankfurt thank you so much for this. i don't know where you spent the holidays the chances are that many of you didn't spend the season at home traveling is a huge trend in fact preliminary data from the u.n. world tourism organization shows the tourism is booming across the globe overall the number of international tourists grew by seven percent last year reaching an estimated one point three billion in twenty seventeen and the strong momentum is expected to continue this year here are some highlights from those figures fronts will remain the most popular tourism destination according to the united nations world tourism organization but spain could be said to replace the u.s. in the number two position with more than eighty million visitors last year
11:13 am
a deadly terror attack in august and the political crisis in catalonia don't appear to have dented spain's overall tourist figures. that's not the case for the u.s. politics affected international visitor numbers which dropped five percent early last year hulloa inauguration of donald trump things a boding well for countries in other regions europe continues to receive the highest number of international tourists six hundred and seventy one million in two thousand and seventeen asia and the pacific recorded three hundred twenty four million international visitors and africa and the middle east combined came in at one hundred thirty million visitors europe and africa had the highest growth rates of eight percent followed by asia pacific. with a six percent growth this is the highest annual growth rate in seven years the agency said this was mostly due to global economic upswing in that it expects
11:14 am
growth to continue twenty eighteen or more sustainable pace of around four percent tourism is one of the world's leading export sectors so the growth is welcome news it could lead to more job creation in trouble and hospitality interest in asian countries. they go wider faster the a three eighty was supposed to be nothing less than a revolution of a global air travel its model planes equipped with cocktail lounge and gym but the two story super jumbo was a slow seller right from the start and now it could phase the end of production all together as most important customer emirates simply isn't ordering enough planes to keep the a three eighty program a life. what was hoped to be the company's biggest success is turning into a disappointing defeat with just over three hundred planes sold and few on order airbus says it will stop making the a three eighty super jumbo if it doesn't get more business from top client emirates which is now buying planes from boeing
11:15 am
airbus says that the dubai based airline is key for its business they are probably the only one who has the ability right now in the marketplace to take a minimum of six a year for a period of eight to ten years and then we can add some on top of that so quite honestly if we can't work out a deal with emirates i think there is no choice but to shut down the program but i'm hopeful that we'll work out a deal with emirates and others can add airplanes on top of that some hold bring mains apparently but the revolution will have to wait. while staying with the industry turkish airlines has reclaimed to the top spot over compared to the emirates because it carried more passengers in twenty seventeen that's according to newly released numbers a sixty nine million passengers flew turkish last year that's a bump of nine percent from the year before. there were sixty six million while
11:16 am
emirates counted fifty nine million it's an impressive rebound for turkish after fierce competition from local scare carriers and a tense political situation in turkey i've heard the allied in recent years. now and now it's back to sumi and more news about a story about important medical treatment in a paul desert monica's a country where medical treatment is limited there's only one hospital specializing in plastic school staff our next report has some distressing accounts of the outcomes for the patients could be life changing. anita is eighteen ten months ago a kerosene cooker exploded leaving her with terrible injuries only her face was left unscathed. but there's hope and a german plastic surgeon who's visiting nepal will operate on her burn injuries are common here. they're really lovely people. loving and happy then you take the

bandages off and you get such a shock it's very sad over the course of four busy days the german doctors will support their nepali colleagues and share their expertise. sarita is another patient one her long hair got caught in a harvesting machine she was practically scalped she'll be getting surgery to is very pretty. it's the young patients that move to the most another is five year old said. he was born with two of his fingers joined together. and it's not a life or death situation of course but there's a difference between having to normal and to join fingers and he's so small and sweet of course we have to help him it's hard not to be charmed by a child like this. it's early the next morning.
11:18 am
hospital is the only clinic specializing in plastic surgery and. most of its patients are poor and they're treated here free of charge. the hospital was established twenty years ago by the german aid organisation interplast which continues to provide financial support. first up this morning is the boy with the two joint fingers he's brave at first but when the procedure begins his courage slips away. when he wakes up he'll have five fingers. it is one of the nepali surgeons here he feels great compassion for the boy when he was a small child he put his fingers into an electric socket he's been in pain ever since from the scars caused by his injuries. then it's a rita's turn the woman who had lost all her hair. under

11:23 am
more about dolores o'riordan why she was so important to her music impacted so many people what you're looking for in a rock singer is the distinctive voice whether it's lou reed or kate bush or dolores the written you don't have to hear her for ten seconds or less on the radio to know that it was a very distinctive vocal style whether she turned it to her advantage in the vulnerability of a hit like linger or used it with very focused energy for the worldwide smash zombie i mean she had this kind of your technique that she says she picked up from her father following him around when he used to sing sort of country western songs of the ones you cowboy blues and so on and added to this sense of a vulnerability but whatever it was it really struck with fans as you mentioned earlier huge hits forty million worldwide sales seventeen million for the second album seven million of that in the u.s. alone so it was really resonant that it touched
11:24 am
a nerve. we mentioned that she was from limerick in ireland let's listen to what people there had to say when they heard about her passing. shocked and saddened just to hear the news someone so young and i remember her from the the early days starting out city when she was very naive and shy would need and face the crowds oh my god rest of the state and all of my thoughts she was so would like to know indecision thirty quid for limerick she's from body broken. my fatter music that she's the main story first in this well because we're all doing performing arts in us. to people from the work that actually bring. something very says. so he left an important market especially there in limerick where she came from she fought her own personal demons as well mark tell us more about that all the pressures on any star of the kind you have to fill stadiums is huge i mean exhaustion plays a massive part and restoring puts a great deal of pressure on any member of the band but the front person in
